I've been to the last 4 Coachella weekends and quite enjoyed myself at all of them. I was planning on going this year, but I have to say, in my opinion this is the weakest line-up in the history of Coachella. I'm further confused by the fact that it was watered down into a 3-day event. If there are not enough exciting acts to go around for 2 Days, why add a third? I guess the obvious answer is to make more money, but at what cost?
There are, of course, a few exceptions. I'd love to see Rage play, but I'm betting they will tour so I can catch them when they play locally. Why on earth though, would you recycle The Chili Peppers through another Coachella. They are a decent band and all....but, personally, I was bored with them after Lollapalooza 2 - I'm tired of seeing this mediocre band anchor festivals (o.k. - bring it on, ChiliHeads).
I'm just sad that we see many recycled Coachella acts here and that the quality has been diluted over 3 days.
Just my opinion...but I don't think I'm alone.
